Banana Hill are a collective that began in Sheffield, filling the city’s warehouses with sounds of the global underground before laying down its roots in Manchester.
Headed up by Cervo, Banana Hill host monthly parties showcasing music & artists from around the world. Vinyl releases from Majid Bekkas, Contours and XOA have also kick-started their journey as a record label.
Banana Hill bring together amazing sounds from around the globe. A love of all things afrobeat, jazz, kwaito, disco, house, neo-soul, techno, kuduro, hip hop and footwork are what the night and label are centred on.
This month Cervo presents a guest mix from Nairobi based producer Jinku. He is part of a new generation of producers and musicians in Kenya, often dubbed ‘Nu-Nairobi’. He is the founder of a group called EA Wave who play together as a live act.
